Every year we head over to the same orchard for apple picking. I’m certain that there are plenty of closer options, but I’ve been going to this same place since I was a kid. So, for nostalgic reasons it’s worth the trip. This year I was starting to think that we might not be able to make it. From now throughout the entire month of October our weekends are literally booked.
As it turned out a last minute change in plans (due to my husband’s recent hand surgery) left us with a free day on Saturday. We jumped at the opportunity to take the girls apple picking!
We had perfect weather. I was worried about going so early (usually we go in October), I absolutely need it to be chilly when I go apple picking. There’s been a few times when we’ve had unseasonably warm weather for it and it makes me a little cranky. Fall is my favorite season and I love a crisp day for when we visit the orchard….and luckily that’s exactly what we got.
I feel badly that our original plans were canceled, but I’m very happy we were able to get out and make good use of our free day!
